This article reports on Foodbank Histories, a multi-organisational project connecting oral histories and social justice at Newcastle West End Foodbank (NWEF). Foodbank Histories recorded interviews with clients, volunteers, and supporters of NWEF, aiming to raise awareness of food poverty and generate income for the foodbank. We outline the proliferation of foodbanks in contemporary Britain, and situate Newcastle in its socio-political and geographical contexts. The article reviews the methodology and epistemology of this collaborative project, and particularly the challenges of coproduction. It also details the ongoing public outputs from this dynamic project.
